In Istanbul gathered in an emergency session of the organization of Islamic cooperation. The reason for its convening was the situation on the Temple mount in Jerusalem. Speakers condemned the terrorists who attacked the police, and the government of Israel, which, according to them, used the incident to attack the al-Aqsa mosque.
«Netanyahu will not accept defeat. He will try again and again to change the situation on the Haar al-Sharif. Need to prepare for the next round of confrontation. He will start soon and will be very difficult. We won, but the war will be long», — said the Minister of foreign Affairs of the Palestinian national authority Riyad al-Maliki.
His Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu has expressed confidence that a fitting response to Israeli provocations will only get the recognition of a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as its capital.
«The Palestinians 50 years of living under occupation. Millions of them were forced to leave their homeland. To support them in words – not enough to correct a historical injustice. Action is required,» said the Turkish Minister.
The foreign Minister of Jordan, Ayman Safadi said that Jerusalem is an exclusively Muslim Shrine. According to him, provocations by the Israeli government threaten to blow up the whole middle East region.
